Have you ever felt disconnected?
It’s a strange feeling, isn’t it?
Disconnect can take form in a number of ways. This disconnect can be from your authentic self or a disconnect from others.
Being curios to understand how feelings of disconnect occur, I did some research and have compiled a list of potential causes for feeling disconnected and a list of ways to minimize these feelings from my own experience and from what I have read.
I believe that whatever words stand out to you in these lists may be a sign or call to action. I know while doing research that I noticed that some things resonated with me more than others.
FOMO caused by social media
Not being fully present in conversation
Doing things that don’t align with your goals
Worrying about yourself instead of helping others (yes, obviously you need to take care of yourself, but our purpose on earth is finding ways to serve others)
Not spending enough alone time
Spending too much alone time
Spending time in nature
Developing mindfulness practices
Paying attention to your emotions (don’t suppress)
Make future plans (events, girls night, etc.)
Talking to a stranger
Eating whole foods
Playing with a pet
Having a creative outlet
Putting your phone down and taking a break
These lists contain causes and solutions for both personal disconnection and disconnection from others.
Again, I think whichever activities resonated with you the most is what is most telling.
We all crave to feel connected. It’s a human need!
I hope you find love & connection in your day today. Thanks!
Any things you do to feel connected? I would love to hear them.
